We have an exciting opportunity for a Small Animal Vet to join our dedicated and friendly first opinion team. We are dedicated to maintaining a fresh and modern attitude towards veterinary care. Our aim is to provide the best possible care for our patients and their owners. We believe this is achieved through dedication, conscientiousness, compassion and teamwork.
Newnham Court Vets have been caring for the animals of Maidstone and the surrounding areas for over a hundred years.
Our Hospital was lovingly built from scratch and has grown with the community into a tier three, RCVS accredited hospital. We were the first practice in the area to hold a tier three hospital status and have always been innovational with our facilities and procedures. We are proud of our journey so far and look forward to our bright future.
Along with our four directors, our first opinion team is made up of a further five full time veterinary surgeons and two part time. Our Emergency and Continuous Care team is made up of eight highly skilled vets that work evenings, nights and weekends to give our clients and their animals continuity of care.
We are incredibly proud to have such a highly trained and knowledgeable nursing team. With nearly fifty members on the team split down into our nursing auxiliaries, student nurses, qualified RVNS, emergency and critical care nurses and the nursing management team we have a huge skill set among them including advance certificate holders. Our nursing team are on hand to deal with anything from weight checks and pet health club sign ups, to assisting with complicated surgical procedures.
Our Hospital is extremely well equipped and long established and we’re incredibly proud of our team. Our rotas give us all a great work-life balance and we focus heavily on personal and professional development.
Fantastic friendly vets that actually appear to know what they are doing unlike some vets. They appear to really care about the animals too. I would highly recommend this vets Cat Polderman (Google Review)
